Gregg Still Doesn't Like Obama's Budget

By Chris Good

A note from the Senate floor (or, rather, from CSPAN's coverage of it): Sen. Judd Gregg still does not like President Obama's spending roadmap for the next ten years. After offering some sharp criticism of Obama's budget proposal when it was announced, the erstwhile Commerce nominee continued to rail against it in a floor speech today: "It is, simply, an attack on the entrepreneurial elements of our society," Gregg said. One of his major problems with it: lack of entitlement reform in light of the future problems the baby boom generation will likely cause.
